    Thunderheads question??

    Any of you guys shoot NAP thunderheads, I'm not much of a bowhunter, but I've been tuning them to my arrows so they cut perfectly through paper and my buddy said you don't want to shoot those at any kind of animal their garbage. I've been trying like crazy to put something on the ground the last couple years with my bow and don't want to have something inferior in my arsenal!!

    I would argue that they have killed as many animals as just about any other broadhead ever made.

    I shoot them and have killed at least 4 elk now with them and I haven't kept track of how many deer.

    Kind of nice that with all the fancy new offerings you can find some pretty good deals on ebay.

    I put a fresh set of 100s on a dozen shafts every season for deer and/or elk.

    Those over priced G5 montecs. I'm shooting 125gr thunderheads on a 10.3 GPI @ 28.5", blazer vanes and 65lb DW. I'd think they'd be more than heavy enough and carry plenty of kinetic energy for elk??

    They are fine!
    I should be using the 125s but I like the 100s on deer and I refuse to change.
    Even the 100s are ok on elk but the 125s would be better.

    Interesting that he is shooting the only other broadheads I ever use.
    The G5s are much more durable but they can't compare on sharpness.
    Montecs can survive a shot into a stump or dirt bank and survive just fine.
    You will never get an edge on one like a Thunderhead.

    Just for reference.....
    I took a big fat Rosie Cow 2012 season, shooting 100gr, 63 lbs, Broadhead passthrough at 60+

    A few years earlier I put a Montec G5 3/4 of the way through, same basic kill shot, at 36yds, (no major bone impact either one)

    Now every shot and animal is different but those results are why I'm shooting the Thunderheads.
